California may have fires, mudslides, earthquakes, high taxes, expensive houses, and a fiscal crisis but it also has incredible beauty and is a great place to live. I'm glad I'm back. Today I went for a ride down the coast. You don't have to venture very far (in miles) to be very far from city life.
There isn't anything amazing that I shot....tide was not good to get down into rocks and I completely screwed up where I would be at sunset but here are a few.
Now why did I name the thread WOW???? This shot was done directly into horrible sunlight. I knew it was going to be toast but wanted to see what I could do with the file. The first is straight from the camera. The second is after higlight recovery, some curves and a few other Lightroom tweaks. I'm pretty shocked that I could recover it to where I did.
A couple of others....all with 45-200
also at 200mm from pretty far away just trying to see how the lens captured the detail no real merit to the picture
